Mexico Pelagico


Jeronimo Prieto

While the Pelagic Life team is chasing the elusive sardine baitball in the open ocean near Baja California, they stumble upon a crude shark fishing operation that sparks a seismic shift in the group’s thinking. Departing from their original concept of documenting awesome sea-life phenomenon, they transform their mission to creating awareness of Mexico’s sea-life while creating sustainable livelihoods for the shark fishermen in order to preserve a delicate and critical ecosystem.

Mexico Pelagico is a documentary film that invites the audience to engage with Mexico’s rich and majestic oceanic treasures, to be inspired and awed to take up the mantle of respect and conservation through ecotourism. It condenses three years of filming and learning in the open ocean. The purpose is to create awareness and ignite sustainable protection for pelagic life.
